time to rank the nerves again, jitters in check, tickets in an obvious place, carkeys not to far off, money at the ready, check.

Now the important things, hot water to get the voice going, thundersticks, retro shirts, flags, towels, and of course "the sign".


What a preparation.... keeps you so busy there's not time to get nervous,. then us poor stay at homers......

Oh yes, it's currently 9AM Indiana time and I haven't slept in 24 hours. I doubt I'll sleep today, the excitement is already building. I drove up to West Lafayette to visit a friend immediately following Game 4, arriving just in time to actually watch the ESPN rebroadcast of the game. I hadn't seen a Pacers game since Game 4 versus Boston on April 25th. Tonight, courtesy of the greatest friend on Earth (she says I'll owe her), I will watch Game 5. We're 10 hours away from tipoff. I think I speak for everyone when I say...

START THE GAME ALREADY!!!!

We're down to about 8 hours.

I'm not a big Indy 500 fan. I've been to Indianapolis about five summers in a row for a weekend. I love the ballpark and love the zoo and the downtown. We think it's vastly underrated. But one thing I've never done is even think about finding the speedway believe it or not. Oh, I've also never been in the NCAA Hall of Fame. Is the Hall of Fame worth it? Can you even get to the speedway when there are no races that week?

One more thing I love about the city. I love how the expressways circle the city. If you can't get somewhere using maps of the city, just go around it until you find an exit close to your area. That was some pretty smart planning by someone.

P.S. Any minor league fans here - if so GO MUDHENS! Beat Indy! :D

I need a win. The Tigers lost today with a ninth-inning collapse.
Hopefully it'll be a good game for all of us.

I have a good feeling. I just beat Halo for about the 200th time, and this time in the credits I noticed a person named Ben Wallace mentioned. Very good omen for Detroit. :)
